Analyzing Hierarchy Spatial Structure of Chinese Ancient Town
Village as the basic prototype, most of the Chinese ancient towns have formed distinctive spatial structure in the joint action of multiple factors. Space of Chinese ancient town embodies hierarchy structure from large to small in the process of formation and development. The space system of geography, town, environment, architecture, livingmaterial produce hierarchy structure, the higher level including the lower level, the lower level reflecting the higher level, and forming system of compound spatial structure in Chinese ancient towns in the end.
